49ers offer refunds to season-ticket holders, say Levi’s Stadium may not host fans in 2020

Jul 8, 2020 at 1:16 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday sent out emails to season-ticket holders informing them of their options for the 2020 season. The team notes that it does not yet have definitive details on what the preseason schedule might look like. It also took the opportunity to communicate the approach to ticket sales at Levi's Stadium for this year.

The team acknowledges that Levi's Stadium may not be able to host fans in a "full or limited capacity" during the upcoming season.

"To ensure the health and safety of our season ticket members, players, coaches, staff, and the greater community and to comply with state and local restrictions, we may not be able to host fans in a full or limited capacity this season," read the email. "Given this uncertainty, season ticket members will have two options for payments made for the upcoming season: (1) credit your 2020 payments to the 2021 season; or (2) request a refund. In the event we have limited capacity at Levi's Stadium this season, tickets will be made available on a game-by-game basis at the season ticket rate. Members electing to credit 2020 payments to the 2021 season will receive preferred access to available tickets."

Those electing to receive refunds will see no negative impact on their account seniority or seat location but will not gain preferred access to ticket sales for the upcoming season, should any seats be made available.

The 49ers and NFL as a whole continue to work out the detail of holding a 2020 season. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the league to reevaluate how fans will experience football this year.

Other NFL teams, like the Baltimore Ravens, have already informed their season-ticket holders of similar options while noting that seating at M&T Bank Stadium will be reduced to a maximum of 14,000 seats per game. That's assuming even that number is permitted under state and local regulations. The situation remains fluid and could change drastically in the weeks and months ahead.

"With ticket demand expected to exceed any availability in 2020, ticket availability is not guaranteed for any member this season," the 49ers noted on the team's official website.

Every year, we poll 49ers Webzone fans to determine the San Francisco 49ers' most valuable player in the eyes of The Faithful. Our fans have been choosing an MVP on an annual basis since after the 1998 season when quarterback Steve Young became the first player to win the honor. Since then, just four linebackers have won. They are Julian Peterson (2003), Patrick Willis (2007, 2010), NaVorro Bowman (2015), and now Fred Warner, who is the latest winner. Warner ran away with the fan voting, garnering 78.6 percent of the votes. The next-closest player was rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, who earned 6.4 percent of the

49ers have one thing no other team can offer Deshaun Watson

In the end, it may come down to what the San Francisco 49ers — or any other interested NFL team — can offer the Houston Texans for quarterback Deshaun Watson. Yes, Watson does have a no-trade clause in his contract. If he pushed the Texans to trade him, the quarterback would at least have the power to approve of his destination. The divide between Watson and the Texans has made for an interesting offseason so far, at least for the teams not participating in postseason play. The young quarterback would be considered an upgrade for most of the teams watching the playoffs from home. San Francisco 49ers fans have to wonder what kind of magic Kyle Shanahan might dial up with

Fred Warner trusts Shanahan and Lynch's vision for the 49ers, feels 2020 is the last losing season

There is so much uncertainty for the San Francisco 49ers as they embark into the 2021 offseason. Nearly 40 players are scheduled to become free agents, and the team is pressed up against a salary cap that is expected to drop from $198.2 million to a number that could be as low as $175 million. General manager John Lynch said this week that the 49ers are operating under the assumption that they will have $175 million to work with this year. Anything more would be a bonus. That means some tough decisions may be on the horizon, and the roster could look very different next season. Fred Warner, who will need a contract extension himself fairly soon, isn't too worried about the 49ers' future. After all, 2020's downfall had more to do with injuries than anything else.
